Horses played such a great part during the development of outback and agricultural Australia. Add them to the determination of those who work with them and there is always a positive outcome.
Here we follow the progress of how men, women, horses and fences played such a roll in the development of Australia, particularly when things don't always go according to plan.
Follow this family as they move with the times.
David Kentish spent his early years on the family dairy farm just south of Perth in Western Australia near the small settlement of Keysbrook.
Before the time of broadcast television, his father, J. Lance Kentish, spent time in the evenings inventing and telling stories about the bush animals, the talking red-gum tree and the magic carpet to his family.
David has continued in this same vein with the telling of stories of imaginary Australian bush animals and friends and the many predicaments that they find themselves involved in.
Having completed two books of family history way back in 1996, David has been busy.
He and his wife Barbara, enjoys travelling with their 4x4 and caravan in and around the Australian outback and bush. This is where he gets most of his inspiration which has led to a collection of stories of their travels.
King's Gold, A Place Called Earth and Beside the Billabong, were written whilst on one of these trips.
A selection of well written yarns that will keep you intrigued right up to the last page.
KVK is David's latest story which is a bibliography of his mother's life. A bibliography of outstanding achievements. Prosperity during times of distress is uncommon. Here's a lady who achieved all of that, plus more. Born into near poverty, Vera shows how it can be done. Her Christian beliefs and her ability to achieve success with very limited resources shows her strength of character.
And there's more too!
The Little Pink Dragon Who Couldn't, deals with the problem of depression and how one little person found the answers to her problems.
He is currently working on a group of short stories which will appear in booklet form in the very near future. Horseshoes and Fences tell many yarns that could be told around the campfire or in the lounge room. From riding hacks to houses, from picks to guns, from shovels to tractors. Every chapter tells a story and most will give you the chance to have a cackle too.
